Election Day PD Workshop – Writing to Create Community



SOLD OUT Writing to Create Community

UPDATE:  This event has SOLD OUT.  Thank you to all of the teachers and schools who expressed interest in this event.  We are in the process of planning additional professional development opportunities to begin in February, 2015.  To be notified of these and other future NYCWP offerings, please email admin@nycwritingproject.org with the subject line MAILING LIST.

We also encourage interested parties to enroll in the Fall 2014 phase of the Youth Voices Inquiry Project, which is currently accepting applications.  Please visit our Youth Voices pages for more information.


Join the New York City Writing Project for a full-day Professional Development workshop that interrogates the uses of writing in the classroom as a means of building community, fostering collaboration and increasing student engagement.  This workshop, which is appropriate for teachers of all grades and content areas, will provide teachers with interactive approaches to writing that are immediately applicable in classroom contexts, as well as the theory and pedagogy that support such activities.  By exploring a variety of writing activities and assignments–both rigorous, academic writing as well as exploratory and process writing–teachers will learn to view writing not only as an outcome, but as a vehicle for student learning.  All activities are aligned to the Common Core State Standards in Reading and Writing.

Lunch will be provided.

Participants will need to secure permission from their principals to attend this Professional Development workshop, as it would be attended in lieu of school-created Election Day PD.


Individuals can register for the workshop here.  

Administrators who would like to pay by Purchase Order should email Emmy Williamson at emmy.williamson@gmail.com

Please note that participation is first-come, first-served and that seating may be limited.
